2022-23 Performance DatA

Attainment of Year 6 2022-23:

Progress of Year 6 2022-23:

*It's important to note that this data reflects a point in time and does not take into account the changes made to the school since September 2023.

What does this mean?

  • Pupils performed better in reading assessments than they did in writing or mathematics. 
  • The proportion of pupils achieving the higher score for reading (greater depth) is higher than in writing and mathematics.
  • Pupils combined attainment (achieving reading, writing and mathematics) is lower than the national average.

What are we doing?

  • We have introduced a new curriculum - in September 2023 - that is pitched at higher attainment through reading.
  • We have developed new component units for mathematics.
  • Writing is a central focus - as demonstrated through our School Development Plan.


The school had a Section 5 inspection (a full judgement inspection) in early September 2022.

The school had a follow-up 'requires improvement' monitoring inspection in early September 2023. Note the HMI's judgement that Valentine Primary has made progress to improve the school.
